About us

Your mold and technology supplier for precision molded glass optics
Aixtooling GmbH was founded in 2005 in Aachen, Germany. Today, the company covers the entire value chain for precision molding of optical glass lenses. Core competences of Aixtooling are the mold design, the process design and the manufacture of high-precision molding systems.

The technology of isothermal glass molding is suitible for the production of ready-to-use optics with shape accuracies down to lambda/6. Applications can be found in different industries (laser technologies, medical industries etc.) and cover aspherical optics in different sizes, cylindrical optics, lens arrays, torical lenses and free form elements. Recently even diffractive optics have been molded sucessfully.

Good strategic partnerships, the use and mastery of excellent equipment, extensive technological expertise, trusting collaboration with customers, and the trend towards wider use of complexly shaped optics are the fundamental principles of Aixtooling GmbH, and in the past few years they have led to successful corporate development.
